How much is a wedding photographer Dubuque?

Different photographers in dubuque charge different prices.  Rates can vary from several hundred dollars to over five thousand dollars per wedding.  Photographers that charge a few hundred upfront are generally students or recent graduates using non-professional, secondhand or rented equipment, or they are professionals that retain copyright to your photos and add on fees, causing the final bill to balloon to several thousand dollars over the initial estimate.  In some cases, we’ve even had brides contacting us a few days before their wedding because the photographer they hired did a bait and switch, and demanded three times as much as they originally estimated, and then cancelled on them when they refused to pay what was originally agreed.

What types of photography packages and companies are there in Dubuque?

Most photography studios, or freelance photographers, will offer a basic package of just photography.  They will then charge additional fees for prints of the photos and albums.  Each one offers unique packages and pricing points.  When doing searches for photographers, you will often come across sites like Thumbtack, The Knot, WeddingWire or Wedding Pros.  These are not actual photographers, but rather services that sell leads to them.  They often charge hundreds of dollars per job, which those companies have to pass on to the customer, so you can often get better rates by going directly to each photographer on their sites.  We’ve included info on some of the more prominent photography companies servicing the Dubuque area below.
